_ 1, Your Directors have the pleasure of submitting herewith the accounts of tho 
Company made up to the 15th: March. 4 ; 


i 
' 
1 
1 
} 
( 
| 
| 


2. In addition to the acquisition of the Holborn Viaduct Station, which was. taken, 
over under the original agreement with Mr. Enison, the Company have offected installations 
at the House of Commons, the General’ Post’ Office, City and Guilds of London, the 
Waterloo Bridge Station, tha Holborn Restaurant and’ olscwhere. : : . 


3. The Company is also developing a considerable business in connection with ships, i 
which thoy expect will prove important and lucrative. They have already obtained contracts 
for lighting the following vessels, some of which have been lit, and in the others the work 
is in progross, viz.:— =. . ' ; 
“Tarawera,” Union Steamship Company of New Zealand. 


““Waihora,” —. Do. ; 
~~» “ Rio Pardo,” -National Brazilian Steamship Company. e | 
“ Rio Parana,” Do. , 


“ Pateena,” Tasmanian Steam Navigation Company. 

“ Minerva,” Compagnie Ia Platense. 

“ Apolo,” Do. 

“Clan Macarthur,” Clan Line, 

TLS. “ Malabar,” Lroopship. 

“ Oregon,” Guion Line. 

“ Takapuna,” Union Steamship Company of New Zealand. 

! It may be mentioned that the “Oregon ” is the first vessel which has dispensed entirely with 
oil or any other form of lighting, upon which to fall back in the event of the accidental 
extinction of the Electric Light. 


4, Mr. Eptsow has, however, always been of tho opinien (in which the Board concur) 

that the most profitable business of the Company would be that of Central Station 
Lighting. This was practically impossible without « change of the General Law. To 
meet this difficulty tho Electric Lighting Act of last year was passed, under which 

Provisional Orders ‘may bo obtained, giving the necessary authority to tako up the streets: ; ' 
| but these Provisional Orders first require confirmation by Parliament beforo they are valid. 

The form of these Provisional Ordors has only recently beon settled by the Board of 
Trade, but your Directors hope that tho time is now approaching when they may acquiro 
the ‘necessary powers to create the works for a central station on a large scale. ; 
! 


5. Tho Sharcholdors are already aware that’ the Directors have ceded their rights to 
— the Mancnxsren ann Disrricr Epison Exvecrric Licut Company eo far as a large part of 
Lancashiro was concerned. This local Company has howevor encountered unexpected obstacles, 
and has applied to the parent Company to reconsider the termsof tho concession. Under all the 
ciroumstances, your Directors think that this request is reasonable and they will accordingly 
submit a resolution on the subject to the favourublo consideration of the Meeting. : 


| 


: 6. Your Directors are adviséd that all Companies using Incandescent Lumps are. 
\ infringing the rights they have acquired under Mr. Enison’s Patents. They have bronght 
|. : a test action against the Swan Company, which is proceeding without unavoidable delays; 


i —~ 














and if, as they ‘anticipate, -this ia decided in ‘their favour, it is -to -be presumed that tho, 
other Electric Lighting Companies. will recognisé.the rights “of this Company. The Shari 
holders have already beon informed that a satisfuctory and amicable sottlement had been 
arrived at with one important Company, : : , 





7. Your Directors have from tho first hud the assistance of Dr. Horxiyson; F.R.S., 
and Dr. Fresno, a8 sciontific’ advisers of tho Cumpeny, and have greatly benofited by 
their advice and co-operation. -_ . 


en 


” 8. The Shareholders ‘have already recéived’ a dividend at the Tate 6f 6 per’cont-por— oe a 
annum, up to the 15th of September last, und they will seo that the accounts would admit | 
of a further payment. If this were an ordinary’ joint-stock company, such an additional ; 
distribution might havo been considered desirable, but looking to the constitution of the 
Company, and in view of the increasing business, the Beard think it oxpedient to carry 
forward the bilance, : 









: : 9. The Directors’ regret. that Mr. Wab resigned his seat at the Board some months 
Be ago: they -have clected Mr. M. M. Moonw and Mr. A, Wine as membors of the 


| ‘ Board. ‘The Directors retiring by rotution are Mr. S. Bipweus and Sir J, Lunnock.

plan, 

Tt would he now idle and out of place tu debate any 
loner whether guieh an amalgamation ought at any time to ‘be mada, 

Qoyield to tho claim which is made with great apparent 
reason, that the bettor knowledge of your dirsetors of tho local 
and tomporary circumstances gives thom the right to have their 
Opinion prevail, 

the inerease of capital and of interest thoreon, accom- 
epaniod by a dacreasea of my doforrad! anvetont on “yn sharos must, 
as yott Will allow, make it a serious question for me to consider 
whother in any case T shall personally gain by thas change, 
I learn from persons accustomed to nglish ratos of intorest that 
seven and a hal por cent is regarded as a very high rate and havo 

Ys hoard the opinion oxpressed that a cumulative dividend of 

seven /and ahalf’ per cent, may practically dobar the “LB? sharehold=

who, however, told me that he had no part in the management of your Company, and referred me to 
Mr. ARNOLD Wuite. . 1 aes ; ee ec 

I repeatedly applied to Mr. Ware to know whether or not your Company would take up the 
invention on any terms. : Seg : ” ee cae 

On the 18th May he wrote me, giving what purported to be a report by the ‘Company's 
Consulting Engincer, condemning the system, and stating that it did not accomplish what I claim for 
it, I at once (viz, on the 21st May) took further and most careful tests, in the presence of 
Mr. Bicos, the Editor of the Zéectrician, and Mr. Hottoway, your Superintendent of Isolated 
Plants, the result being a substantial confirmation of the first series of tests. I made inquiries, and 
found that your Company's Consulting Engineer is Dr. Horxinson, and I have thé best of reasons 
for believing that -he has never been invited by Mr: Wutre-to. make. tests of. SAMPER's invention, 

» still less has he done so and condemned it. . Believing this, I have almost daily. endeavoured to get 
Mr. WintTE to give the application an open and unprejudiced test, but without success: On the 7th 

instant I made the Company the following offer :—. : ; : “ 

“ Mr, Samper will manufacture and apply Pulley Grippers to all of your existing installations : 
“in London, the cost of said manufacture and application. to be paid: by Mri: SAMPER, on 
“condition that the Company will make comparisons by actual tests, within fifteen days 
“after the first installation, of the economy of belting and fuel—onehalf of this economy 
“to be paid to Mr. Samper. . These terms. to apply to all existing installations of the 

~ “ Company.” : : ; ‘ na . a 
‘With this I gave Mr, Samper’s references, cither of whom will tell you that he is a solid man,

27th July 1883.) Sir D. Gooon, uP. - [ Continued, 


- 1073. Mr. Shiress Will.] Early in this. year your company obtained a private 

Act of Parliament authorising you to undertake the supply of electricity :— 
We obtained our Act this Session ; quite recently, in fact. The Royal Assent 
was given five or six weeks ago; | do not recollect the exact date. : 

1074. I will put ina copy of that Act of Parliament, but my learned friends do 
not question that at all. Now the supply of electricity for electric lighting was 
.not one of the purposes covered by your articles of association >—We were 
advised that it was not covered by our articles of association, therefore we went 
to Parliament to make certain. ; >. 

1075. That being so, your company, as we know, were not in a position to 
apply for any Provisional Order at the end of last year ?—Not until we got our 
powers about six weeks agn. (A copy of the Company's Act of Parliament .was 
handed in. 

1076, a you aware that your company has offered to the vestry to apply 
for and have taken the necessary steps by giving notice to apply for a Pro- 
visional Order !—We did so as soon as ‘we were in a position to do it. oe 

1077. 1 believe your company would be willing, with the approbation of this 
Committee, to deposit the sum of 10,000 J,, or whatever the Committee thought 
right, as a guarantee of your.good faith with the Board of Trade to carry out 
the works which you may undertake ; 





Mr, Pope.] The Committee can give no ‘such approval, nor can they 
call for any deposit. 


/¥itness.| But we are quite prepared to make any reasonable deposit. 


Mr. Pope.] I do not think you need trouble yourself with that. Any 
company of which Sir Daniel Gooch is the Chairman would be prepared to 
carry out its engagements, I have no doubt. 


1078. Shiress /Vill.] But more than that I ask whether his company will not 
be prepared to adopt any suggestion of the Committee in order to show the 
good faith of the company in this matter ?—We are prepared to act in good 
faith in carrying out the work, and whatever the Committee might think right | 
we would agree to. 89° ote arn ee i ea 

1079. I do not know whether the Committee remember it, but this was said 
by. my learned, Mr. Pope, in his opening. ‘I shall be curious to know what 
guarantee there is, or what guarantee you would have, or what guarantee Par- 
liament would have if you listened to the Telegraph Construction and Main- 

"tenance Company, and rejected this Provisional Order with proper restrictions 
upon it.” Now, my learned friend says that he does not press for any 
guarantee 7—— 


Mr. Pope.] 1-did not say that I did not, but I only said this Committee 
cannot receive any or propose any. : 


1080. Mr. Shiress Will.] My learned friend knows that if the Committee . 
thought fit to make any suggestion, it is quite competent for us to undertake to 
carry it out. (To the Witness.) Is the company of which you are chairman pre- 
pared to undertake the supply of electric lighting. for St. James's parish ?— Yes, 
we are quite prepared to undertake to light it. 

1081, And to spend, I think, a very large sum of money in doing that?— 
Yes. ; . ae a : 
1082, Have you any estimate of what it would cost 7—Yes ; our officers have 
gone into the cost, and we are satisfied to carry out the work upon such esti- 
mates as have been furnished to us; in fact, if we undertake the work we will 
carry it out whatever the cost may be. 

1083. You have ample means for doing it ?—Yes, we have. 

1084. You have large works and every convenience for carrying out the 
undertaking t—Yes, we have véry large works. 

1085. And you would be prepared to furnish the light, I beileve, at 6d. per 
unit?-—Yes, that is the estimate that our officers have given us as to what we 
could do it for. J am not & sufficient electrician’ to know whether it is an 
accurate estimate or not. ; ad

1107. It is dated the 23rd of May 1883, and it is directed to the vestry of 
_St. James’s, Westminster: “Gentlemen, 1 am desired by the board‘of directors 
of this company to communicate with you in regard to the establishment of a 
system of electric lighting in the western part of your parish. This company 
has Bill in Parliament which has passed the Committees of both Houses, and 
will receive the Royal Assent in a few days, authorising them to extend their 
operations to the business of electric lighting. In anticipation ‘of this power, 
we have obtained the exclusive right to Mr. Gordon’s patents, and have. esta- 
blished an installation on his system at our factory, Enderby’s Wharf, Green- 
wich, and some ‘of the members of your body have lately been good enough to 
inspect the works. We are desirous of carrying out at once an installation of 


10,000 or 15,000 lights in St. James's, and are prepared to go into the necessary ~ 


details, and to make all the needful arrangements with you for this purpose. 
We are informed that you are in negotiation with Edison’s Company who seek 


" ‘to obtain a Provisional Order over the larger part of your parish, and sundry 


other parishes embracing .under their Schedule A. the very extensive -area 

* between St. James's Park and the Green Park on the south and west, Piccadilly 
and Long Acre on the north, and Wellington-street, Swand, on the east. We 
respectfully submit to you that the granting of what may practically be exclusive 
rights for 21 years to supply electric light in such a large area is inexpedient in 
the interest of the ratepayers. From communications we’ have had with

said that to entirely supersede gas would cost one sum, but to light all that is 
‘likely to want it for some time, would cost half that sum. ‘faking our 
Schedule A. to entirely supersede gas, would cost, about 200,000 1, but to 
do all the principal streets, ond of course the. houses in them, the public and 
private lighting through all the best portion of the parish, would cost about 
100,000 2. oo, 
1136. The total length of those streets is about 4,745 yards, or 22 miles }— 
‘T think that is so. ; 8 
1137. Which I think you. reckon would be 900 yards beyond what ‘is 
specitied in the Edison Order ?2—Yes, about that. <i 
1138. May I ask what is the estimated number of lamps, public and private, 
which you have reckoned for in that 4,745 yards ?—About 27,000 lamps. 
1139. Within what time would the company, of which you are an officer, be 
prepared to complete the work, if you were authorised to do it?—We would 
_ undertake to do it in 18 montlis, but we should have every expectation of being 
able to finish it in about a year, and the sooner it was finishéd, the sooner we 
should be able to earn dividends upon our capital. 

1140. Have you gone carefully into the question of the cost, as ‘tu the price 
at which you could afford a supply ?—Very carefully indeed. ; 
4141. And you consider that the company would be prepared to undertake 

to give a supply at the maximum price of sixpence per unit 1—Yes, 

1142, Do you consider that that price would enable you to earn a fair profit? 
—I.expect that we should realise a very handsome profit at-that rate. In fact 
I think we should very soon find it good policy to reduce the price. 


1143. Chairman.] Is that upon the assumption that you light the whole dis- 
trict '—Yes. fe 

i144. And the people would have their choice whether they would take the 
light or not ?—We should take the chance of that. 


1145. Mr. Story-Mashelyne.] How many units do you. think you would 
require to supply to pay you at your maximum price ?—I think that about half 
the number of lamps ; that is to say, about half the 27,000, burning about 1,000 


hours a year on the average, would pay us very well. 


1146. Mr. Shiress Will.] As you are prepared to undertake the supply at 
6 d., I see you have made a calculation by which it appears that there would be 
asaving of 10,000/.a year to the inhabitants in Schedule A. district ?—Yes, 
that would be about the rate ; that is taking the difference between 6 d, and 9.4. 
taking the average annual rental of each lamp. 

1147. You would be prepared to supply from one electrical centre, I believe ? 
—Yes, certainly. ; : ; 

1148. If Schedule B. were undertaken, probably that would be from a second 
centre 7—Yes. : 

1149. With regard to Schedule A., probably the Committee would like to have 
this in very short-detail. You would propose to have four very powerful 
dynamos there, I believe 2—Three or four. 

1150. I will not go into any details with you in the first instanee, but you 
are prepared, are you not, to answer any questions upon, it showing how you 
have made your calculations ?—Yes. 2 . 

1151. The Gordon dynamo, I believe, is a very powerful dynamo, the most 

_. powerful, I believe, at present in the world ?—It is. . : 


1152. Mr. Story-Maskelyne. Do you suppose you can get electricity any 
cheaper with your dynamo ?—We can’ supply it cheaper with our dynamo; I 
shall be happy to explain the reasons why we think so. =. ; ; 


1153. Mr. Shiress Will.| The Telegraph Construction and Muintenance 

- Company would be able, would-they not, to use any lamp that they thought fit? 

—We should be free so to adjust our electro motive force that it would suit the 

best lamp; we should not have to give a practical recommendation to one par- 
ticular lamp by fixing the electro motive force to suit it only.

hine, ‘and:half from another. Those double mains 
do. not require any extra expenditure of copper, merely a slight extra expendi- 
ture of iron tube; if upon the siigle system we should be laying a main for 
1,000 lamps, then upon the double aystem we should be laying two mains for 


500 each. a anne 
1207. Does not that require a double system of meters all through, and — 


double wires in the houses ?— It ‘requires a double system’ of mains, but not a 
double system of meters. ; 
- 1208. Has that metre which you have now ever been tried ?— It has not been 
tried except experimentally, but it has been tried in our works, and success- 
fully. : ag 
1209. It hasn 
—No, hardly so, 
only a meter mad 


‘the whole supply. 
" y210. I think you have rather gone from the point to which I called your 


attention. In your system, do not you have two sets of wires in a‘house which 
are quite independent of each other ?—Yes. 

1211. Do you mean to say that that will not’ increase the cost to the con- 
sumer 7—Certainly not; it will increase it in one way, but it will not increase 
it by nearly as much as is saved by the other advantages of the system. 
” 4212. What are the other advantages of the system ?—The saving in wages, 


for example, 
1213. Your system is the alternating system ?—Yes ; but before I leave that 


question of the wages, may I mention what a large sum those amount to. Upon 


an estimate for about 25,000 lamps, where, according to the system we work 
upon, the current expenditure would be about 22,000 1. by using two dynamos 
at work, and one in reserve, each dynamo being of the power of 15,000 lights ; 
if we use dynamos of the power of from 1,300 to 1,500. it would increase the 


total expenditure by considerably more than 50 per cent. 

Mr. Moulton stated that he would not further cross-examine the Witness 
on this point, but would ask leave to call two eminent witnesses to prove 
that the statement was inaccurate. ; , ; 

Mr. Moulton (to the Witness).] Is it not the fact that because yours 

“js the alternating current, the mains will have to be double or quadruple 
what we required for a direct current ?>—— - 
" Chairman.) This is not a question that we need try out in the way that 
you desire. If ever this gentleman goes before the Board of Trade he will 
tave to make good his position, and show them how he proposes to work 


his engines. ° 
Mr. Moulton.] This Witness says his system is cheaper than the Edison 


system. : : 
-Chairman.] He says they profess:to supply more cheaply than the Edison 
. Company, but you can only get primd facie evidence that that is 80. 


Mr. Bidder.] For the purpose of this case, I think the case I am going 
to ‘put before the Committee, is that we believe we can do it, but it is not 
necessary for that purpose to put before the Committee all the details of 


- the apparatus. 
Mr. Pope.] It is a little important that the Committee should be able to 
estimate ‘whether’ the Witness’s belief is well or ill-founded, and ‘should 


know what evidence he can bring forward to justify his impression. . 


1214. Mr. Moulton.] 1 will only ask one question which goes directly to the 
question of cost, whether the mains would not have to be at least double or 
quadruple the size that they would be with the continuous current t—I say they -

Chairman himself ;: you know generally the Telegraph Construction and Main- 
tenance Works ?—Yes, | know their works pretty well; they are very large and 
extensive works, with machinery and electrical appliances o; all kinds, and they 
are quite competent to carry out electric lighting works. ; 


1271. And their system, in your judgment, is generally a.good one ; that is 
to say, their electric lighting system :—I think so; it was very successfully in 


operation when I examined it minutely. 
1272. Chairman.| You attended at the works for the purpose of examination ? 


1273. I believe you are yourself a ratepayer of St. James's parish, which has 


been under discussion ?—I am. 
1274. It can hardly be suid that you speak under any misrepresentation ‘or 


want of knowledge upon the subject. Speaking as a ratepayer, do you think it 
desirable, in the interests of your fellow ratepayers, that this district. should be 
handed over to the Edison Company under the terms of the Edison Provisional 
Order ?—I go simply upon the terms .of the Provisional: Order price, which I 
consider too high for any company to propose to charge us. 
1275. Let me ask you this, because it is said on behalf of the Board of Trade 
“ We do not consider in giving a company a Provisional Order that they get a 
; if we find afterwards that they are not supplying the electricity as 
cheaply as they might do, we should be prepared to grant a second Order toa 
second company.” Now, assuming that to be so, would it be as inviting a thing 
fterwards to compete with an established 
company having their customers and their good-will, and being in possession of 
the district, as to come to an unoccupied district?—I should say it would be 


obvious to anybody that it would not be so.

If so, may I ask you to say whether that is a proper thing to do? 


Mr. Bidder.] Had not my learned friend better wait until I ask the 

question. : : 
- Mr. Pope.] Not only do they affix their seal to it, but they say they 

will, if required by the company, support the application. 

Chairman.] We have had put in the answer of the vestry, 
aid they were precluded from supporting another company, 
were engaged to the Edison Company. : 

Mr. Pope.] And they have undertaken to su

Mr. Bidder.] We have no evidence of that. Now, because the vestry - 
has done something or other, is it the fact that a member of that vestry is

Mr. Pope.] Of course you ‘have called him with an object. 


Chairman.] If the vestry has anything to say in reference to that letter 
they ought to appear by themselves, I should suppose. : 












Mr. Bidder.] Ihave not had a chance of asking the question; all we 
know at present is that he is a member of the vestry. 

Sir John St. Auby 
ratepayer ? 


1280. Mr, Bidder.) No, Sir ; I venture to sa 


the witness the question, and if it ig an objectionable question then for my 
learned friend to object to it. (To the Witness.) When your vestry assented to 
the application of the Edison Company had.you any knowledge that there were 
other companies prepared to light the district upon more reasonable terms ?— 
The Brush Company applied at the same time for a Provisional Order. 
1281, What became of the application of the Brush Company?—It fell through. 
1282, Were the terms similar to those of the Edison application ?—~I cannot 


_ carry them in my mind, but their proposal was not favourable, or not so favourable, 
as that of the Edison Company, consequently the Committee did not recommend 
it to the vestry. : : 


1283. Did you make representation to the Board of Trade with regard to 
the revision of the maximum price in the Edison Provisional Order 2—Yes, 

1284. Asking for a reduction of it ?—Yes: 

1285. What was the answer of the Board of Trade? 
to work itself out; that so soon‘as the Edison 
they would no doubt reduce the price. 

1286. So that it is not quite accurate to say that the Board of Trade left the 
question of price to be settled by the vestry, or that they were guided by the 
vestry in the question of price ?—No. 


1287, At the time when the Provisional Order was a 
did they know what the price was, as compared with

[The Witness withdrew. 


Mr. Bidder.] That is all the evidence, Sir, that I propose to trouble you 
with, 

Mr. Saunders.) Would you allow me, Sir, to put in a letter which we 
have received upon the point which arose in the discussion yesterday with 
regard to the license to the St. Martin's Vestry, which Mr. Hill said was to 
be discussed last night. We have now received his letter, which, with your 
permission, I propose to read, und hand in. 


Mr. Pope.] You propose to add something, and I will not object to that. 
if you will allow me to add to my evidence something with regard to 
what was asserted, namely, that you were going to light Covent Garden 


Theatre. I have Mr. Gye here, and will ask him whether that ‘is true or 
not. 


Mr. Saunders.] The letter is as follows :—* Vestry of St. Martins’s in- 
the-Fields, 27th July, 1883.—T shall be much obliged if you will lay this 
letter before your vestry on Thursday evening, as time presses. My 
Board ia strongly opposing the grant of Provisional Orders (on the 21 
years’ system) for electric lighting within our district, and have, in pre- 
ference, arranged with the Jablochkoff Company to give them a license for 
seven years only. This arrangement was intended to include the whole 


Strand district. But the Board of Trade have granted a Provisional - 


Order to the Edison Company for lighting your parish (and St. James, 
Westminster), and have included in the area comprised in that Order all 
the parist of St. Panl’s, Covent Garden, and other small parts of the Strand 
’ district. Before the Committee now sitting, the responsibility for this 
dealing with our district has been assigned to your vestry by the Board of 


Trade and the Edison Company. They allege that your vestry pressed . 


for your whole parish being included in the Edison Compuny’s Provisional 
Order, and that as your parish surrounds St. Paul’s, Covent ‘Garden, the 
latter parish, and other parts of our district, will be more conveniently 
included in the: Edison Company's Order than in our license.. I. hope. that 
your vestry will depute one of its members to give evidence before the 
‘ Committee on the Electric Lighting Orders at its next sitting, and, if 
necessary, in the House of Lords, to the effect that you'do not wish to 
prejudice the arrangement which we have made as regards our own: 
district, and to aid us in resisting the application of the Edison Company 
for powers ‘over St. Paul’s, Covent Garden, and the other parts of our 
district to which the application relates, Indeed, as the arrangement 
we have made with the Jablochkoff Company seems .a favourable. one 
for the public being determinable or open to revision at our option at the 
end of every seven years; while the price arranged to begin withis lower 
than that which the Board of Trade have given in your parish to.the Edison 
Company for 21 years, your vestry might perhaps adopt with advantage the 
proposal which I understand the Jablochkoff Company to make, viz., that 
if the confirmation of our arrangement disiuclines the Edison Company to: 
light the outlying part of your parish (round St: Paul’s, Covent Garden) it 
should be undertaken by the Jablochkoff Company on the same terms as 
our district. This seems to me the most reasonable solution of any diffi- 


culty 








ising from the position of the boundary between your parish and 
sar aistrot. if there be any difficulty really, which I doubt ; for I assume, 
of course, that your vestry would impose no difficulty in the way of wires 
being laid underground, on proper conditions, along some street vee 
St. Paul’s, Covent Garden, and the rest of our district, as I think the 
distance is only 30 feet. The form of our license is to be settled hie 
the Jablochkoff Company and a committee consisting of seven members.o 
our board, and in the event of any question arising it is to be referred to 
the Board of Trade to settle.”

YOUR LETTER OF THE 24TH ULTIMO TO MR. WATERHOUSE HAS RE~ 
~CEIVED THE CAREFUL CONSIDERATION OF THE BOARD, AND THE MODIFICATIONS 
WHICH YOU SUGGEST HAVE BEEN sUBMITTED TO THE DIRECTORS OF THE SWAN CO.

THAT’ THE UNSOH OF THE Two COMPANIES 18 THE BEST AND INDEED THE ONLY 
WAY OF BRINGING ABOUT A SPEEDY OEVELOPMENT IN THIS COUNTRY ON A LARGE 
SCALE OF YOUR SYSTEN oF CENTRAL STATION LIGHTING, AND THIS Is ‘NOT ONLY

ASPECT OF ELECTRIC LIGHTING IN THIS COUNTRY AT THE PRESENT TIME WILL 
DENY THAT THE UNNATURAL Nipcarnen OF ELECTRIC LIGHTING COMPANIES 18 
MONTHS AGO HAS HAD A MOST DISASTROUS EFFECT UPON THE FINANCIAL POSITION 
OF REALLY SOUND UNDERTAKINGS. THE PUBLIC SUBSCRIBED LARGELY TO UNDER~ 
-TAKINGS WHICH WERE UNGOUND. COMPANIES SPRANG INTO EXISTENCE ANXIOUS 
TO 00 BUSINESS ON ALMOST ANY TERMS AND THE DEMAND FOR ELEGTRIC LIGHTING 
BEING AT THE TIME EXTREMELY LIMITED IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO BUSINESS AT 
A PROFIT. THE NECEOSARY RESULT WAS A REACTION AND NOW WHEN MANY OF 
THE UNGOUNO UNDERTAKINGS HAVE BROKEN DOWN AND FOR THE FIRST TIME A 
WHOLESOME. DEMAND 18 ARISING THE PUBLIC HOLD SACK AND THE FUNDS NECED~ 
-SARY TO DEVELOPE AN EXTENSIVE BUGINEGS GANNOT EASILY BE OBTAINED. 

IT 18 NECESSARY TO REMEMBER THAT CENTRAL aration LAGHT= 
“ING HAG HITHERTO BEEN [MPOSSIBLE IN THIS COUNTRY. IT 18 ONLY DURING 
THE PRESENT WEEK ‘THAT THE FIRST PROVISIONAL ORDERS UNOER THE ELECTRIC 
LIGHTING ACT OF LAST cae HAVE PASSED THROUGH PARLIAMENT. THESE GIVE 
“FOR THE FIRST TIME THE NECESSARY POWERS OF GREAKING UP THE STREETS AND 


RENDER A PUBLIC SUPPLY OF ELECTRICITY POSSIBLE. OUR COMPANY HAS OB= 


-TAINED POWERS TO LIGHT ONE LARGE AND IMPORTANT OISTRICT IN THE METRO~

“POLIS... THE SWAN COMPANY HAS OBTAINED POWER TO LIGHT SEVERAL SMALLER 
DISTRICTS, ONE OF WHICH 18 ADJACENT TO OUR DISTRICT. BUT TO PROPERLY 
DEVELOPE YOUR SYSTEM OF LIGHTING IN THESE DISTRICTS WILL INVOLVE AN 
EXPENDITURE. WITHIN THE NEXT 2 YEARS OF AT LEAST £250,000 AND PROBAGLY 
MUCH MORE, AND THE QUESTION WHICH IS PRESSING THE DIRECTORS 16 How? THE 
NECESSARY FUNOG ARE TO BE OBTAINED. THIS 18 A VITAL QUESTION AND THE 
DI RECTORE ARE SURE THAT YOU WILL NOT ONLY RECOGNISE THIS, BUT ALSO THAT 
THEY AND THE OTHER SHARKHOLDERS. WHO HAVE SUBSCRIBED THE EXISTING CAPITAL 
ARE BEST ABLE TO JUDGE HOW THIS CAPITAL 18 TO BE OBTAINED. 

THIS BRINGS ME To THE CONSIDERATION OF THE FURST MODIFI - 
~CATION WHICH YOU HAVE SUGGESTED, VIZ: THAT ae A SHARES SHOULD Have 
A PREFERENCE OIVIOEND OF 6 % ONLY INSTEAD OF 77 ho. 

MRe JOHNGON WILL RECOLLECT THAT IN THE CONVERSATIONS WHICH 


WE HAD Lita HIM preees HE LEFT ENGLANO A HIGHER RATE OF PAYERS THAN ~ 


: Va % WAS SUQGESTED AND DISCUSSED. -AND THAT THe, 7a. PER Cone A FIKEO 





UPON BY THE DIRECTORS AS A FAIR MEAN BETWEEN THE HIGHER AND THE Lower 
RATES. IT t& QUITE TRUE THAT WELL ESTABLISHED UNDERTAKINGS CARRYING 


ON A BUSINESS THE INCIDENTS OF WHICH ARE WELL KNOWN MAY OBTAIN MONEY 


BY OFFERING A 6 PER CENT AND EVEN A 5 PER CENT PREFERENCE OLVIDEND.

ATTRACT CAPITAL TO THE UNDERTAKING BOTH A AND 8B SHAREHOLDERS wee 
SUFFER. THE OFRECTORS WISH ME TO POINT OUT WHAT YOU DO NOT REFER TO 
IN YOUR LETTER VIZ? ‘THAT IN RAISING THE PREFERENCE DIVIDEND ON THE A 
SHARES FROM 5 YO TO 7s %, THEY PROPOSE TO TREAT THE £20,000 ALREADY 
PAID AS A PAYMENT OUT ANDO OUT WHICH WOULD HAVE THE EFFECT OF Pere 


THE B SHAREG TO DIVIDEND AT ONCE. ‘THAT THI8 1S A MOBT SHBGTANTTAL |

8 SHARES WOULD PARTICIPATE ANO

WOULD GE 8 YEARS BEFORE THE EXISTING | 
AFTER THIS THEY WOULD RECEIVE £2500 A YEAR BY WAY OF DIVIDEND. IF THE

“CE IVE £4875 & YEAR AND +7 WOULD BE MORE THAN @0 YEARS BEFORE. THE AMOUNT i 





RECEIVED IN DIVIDEND ON THE B SHARES UNDER THE PRESENT SCHEME WOULD

1883. Electric Light - Thomas A. Edison Construction Department ~ General (D-83-040) 


This is the first of twenty-four folders relating to the organization, 
management, and operation of the Thomas A. Edison Construction Department. 
Edison founded this company in 1883 for the purpose of constructing direct-current 
electric power stations in towns and cities throughout the United States. This was 
the only electric light company that Edison managed directly. It operated for 
approximately one year. Most of the documents in these folders deal with the 
organization of local companies in New England, Pennsylvania, and other parts of 
the Northeast, Southeast, and Midwest. 


Included in this folder are documents containing substantial references to 
more than one central station or regional company or to more than one division of 
the Construction Department (for example, the canvassing and engineering 
divisions). Also included are documents that discuss the general business of the 
company. Much of the correspondence is by Samuel Insull, Edison's private 
secretary, who was appointed attorney for central station business. Among the 
other correspondents are P. B. Shaw, Spencer Borden, and William F. Brewster, who 
served as agents for the Edison Company for Isolated Lighting and the Edison 
Electric Light Company. 


Several other folders deal with the activities of the various functional 
divisions of the Construction Department. Bookkeeping records were managed by 
Edison's office staff at 65 Fifth Avenue, New York City and can be found in 
"Thomas A. Edison Construction Department - Accounts." Documents relating to 
the activities of the canvassing department, which was responsible for canvassing 
and mapping prospective central station districts, can be found in "Thomas A. 
Edison Construction Department - Canvassing." Documents pertaining to the 
engineering department, which was responsible for the technical installation of the 
central stations, can be found in "Thomas A. Edison Construction Department - 
Engineering." The remaining folders dea! with the activities of individual central 
stations and local companies. They are organized alphabetically by state and city. 
Documents from the various divisions of the Construction Department that relate 
to one specific station can be found in the folder for that station. 


Related correspondence can be found in D-83-016 (Edison, T.A. - Outgoing 
Correspondence), D-83-025 (Electric Light - Edison Company for Isolated Lighting), 
and Letterbooks LM014 - LM021 (Letterbook Series). Documents pertaining to the 
activities of the Thomas A. Edison Construction Department can also be found in 
the Accounts Series and in the Company Records Series. 


Approximately 90 percent of the documents in this folder have been filmed. 
The following categories of documents have not been filmed: routine 
correspondence regarding orders; copies of an Edison electric light system circular; 
duplicate copies of selected documents.

New York,......JULY..5thg encoun 1883 


My Dear Edison;- 
I received your telegram early to-day about 
teaching Conant the meter bookkeeping according to the Roselle 


style, As I do not understand the Roselle style of meter book-= 


keeping, I sent him out to Roselle with a letter to Oakley, and 


when he comes back to-morrow, I shall put him through a course or 
catechism and find out what he knows, and then take him down to the 
central station to find out the difference between the Roselle 
meter bookkeeping and the Pearl Street station meter bookkeeping, 
As to giving him instructions in all bookkeeping required, I must 
confeas that it is beyond the seope of my ability to give a man 

a liberal education in the oginserue twenty four hours, I know 
you have a very poner contempt for bookkeeping anyway, but I Sah 
assure you that it is not such a simple matter that it ean be 
picked up in that time, Furthermore the general mode of keeping 
the books at Sunbury must be decided by ae Company’s Board or 
their representative, and they must be left to do it themselves 

as they please, as long as they do not interfere with that. part of 
the bookkeeping which perene to the running of the wentien. 

You remember I asked you to get up the forms with me for use in 


the central stations, I cannot very well give Conant instructions 


as to what he is to do until I have got these forms, However, I

New York City. 
Dear Sir;- 


When last in New York, you:jwished me to give you 


the names of towns that I thought would be likely to support a 


no oa 


central station company within this department. .. Besides those 


already sent you after my return, you will be pleased to know, that 


matter, in the towns of Palmer, Spencer, North Brookfield, and 


ea interest in the light seems to be sufficiently awakened in the — j 
Westboro Mass.,so that I think it desirable to make canvasses 


of these towns, and beld@ve that with estimates in hand,we can 


a 


organize @ company.in each of theme ee as 


Will you please put them on the list t@ be canvassed 


next in order to those now in hande |

Adding five per cent interest on say 100,000, which for 







865 days-is $13,60 per day, the daily running expenses will be

at ts 





$25,876.50, yearly

gas would be 20 Ms per hour or GO Ms per davon thease hours 
dvbuaye, 7iNe running expenses being $70.90 daily; would pring the 
cost of each M equivalent to $1.18, - Buying gas at $3/25, would | 


4 
: fe : 
make a loss of $64,10 a day to the occupants of the flats, a 


Z: 1 


Interest at five per cent being already ‘allowed, this 
$64.10 would pay twenty three per cent more on the 100,000, on 
altogether twenty eight per cent on tha invéstment, and the 
} investovs Goud obtain a vastly superior article.

Thos. A. Edison, Esqe 
O65 Fifth Ave, “NOGRAPHIC 
| New York City, 
Dear Sipe . 

Your favor Nove 20th, duly received, and that 
referring to the plan for Webstor, I have referred to Mr Paine who 
will do what can be done in the matter, and I will report to you. 

I note mae yuu say about the estimateassfor Norwich and 
Natick. I had not intended sending sities of these until I got 
an answer to mine of 10th inst. However , the promoter of the 
Natick Company came in, and I gave him the estimate for the town, 
adding in pencil the amount I supposed sufficient torcover an 8 1-2 
by 10 engine, and two small dynamos, as I feit-cortain he would 
want these for a spares I am aware that the 14 1-2 by 13 engine 
has greater capacity than that of the boiler which you have includ- 
ed in these estimates, but did not dare to assume the responsibil- 
ity of starting station without a spare engine and dynamo to pro- 


vide against any contingency of accident to the larger apparurus. 


TETEY 
Be 
J of course did not suppose that both engines would be run at the 
same time from the 90 horse boilere Had I not better add the same 
margin against congingencies to the Norwich estimate. 


Yours very truly,

1883. Electric Light - Thomas A. Edison Construction Department - 
Accounts (D-83-041) [not filmed] 


This folder contains routine financial and bookkeeping records. Included are 
accounts, employee time sheets and expense vouchers, and invoices and shipping 
receipts for construction supplies. Most of the documents pertain to routine 
expenses such as the purchase of system components and miscellaneous supplies. 
Related material can be found in the Accounts Series. 











1883. Electric Light - Thomas A. Edison Construction Department - Canvassing (D-83-042) 


This folder contains correspondence and other documents pertaining to the 
canvassing of prospective towns for the installation of central stations. The areas 
visited by the canvassers were primarily in the East and in the Midwest. Much of 
the correspondence is by canvassers Charles H. Cooke, Paul D. Dyer, and George 
W. Wilber. There are also numerous letters by Charles F. Richardson, who 
prepared maps of central station districts. Documents relating to the canvassing 
of one specific station can be found in the folder for that station. 


All the documents have been filmed except for a map of St. Paul, Minnesota 
and a printed circular describing the "Principal Cities on... [the] Louisville and 
Nashville Railroad."

Dear Sir: 


T send you Dy... cecssscscssesssssssscesssersnsesstnesnetseesstasnsssene Blue Print of... 
on which I have marked in red pencil the portion of the town “within which it is desirable that 
our Electric Light Central Station should be located. I shall be glad if. you, will obtain for me 
information on the’ following points concerning any lots for sale within the area marked: 





Exact size of each. lot, 

Price of each lot. © 

Nature of. soil, 

Whether each lot is level. 

Elevation of each above water line. 

If there is a building‘on any of the lots, ‘and whether wood or brick; and for what purpose it 
has been used. \ 

Full dimensions of Buileling including height of same, thickness of walls, size of rooms, whether 
more than one floor, 

Whether building in good repair, 

When sending me this information, please return Blue Print with the position of each lot clearly 
marked on it. 

It is not at all necessary that the lot for. our Central Station stould be located on a prominent 
street where property is in great demand, and consequently very expensive. We desire a lot as near 
the centre of lighting as possible, and such a lot can usually be obtained in a back street or alley 
where property as a rule is comparatively cheap. 

Please reply'as promptly as possible, as it is impossible for me to proceed with the estimate 


until I receive the above referred to information.

Yours truly,

Reports on the Spring Valley Hydraulic Gold Company. 86 


In order to ascertain the 


present condition of the property, the 
following telegram was sent: 


New York, January 2d, 1880. 
Charles Waldeyer, 


Cherokee, Cal. 


; Lelegraph exact amount of and days work in 
November, clean up. 


EDWARD BATES DORSEY, 
President. 


To this the following reply was received: 


Cherokee, January 8d, 1880, 
Edward Bates Dorsey, vs 


a Prest, United States Mining Investment Co., 
: New York. 


Seventy days run. Bighty thousand seven hundred 
ninety-one dollars. 


CHAS. WALDEYER. 


This is more than enough to pay 1% per cent. per month on 
$2,000,000, as owing to the thorough condition of ‘the plant the 
expenses are very light. It is expected this amount will be largely 
increased on the consolidation of the property after the purchase, 
and more than doubled after twelve months. . :

Reports on the Spring Valley Hydraulic Gold Company. 


ADDENDA. 


The following is a letter just received. 


Cueroker, Butte Co,, Cat, 
Yanuary i1, 1880. 
Epwarp Bates Dorsey, Esq, | 
President United States Mining Investment Company, 
New York. 
Dear Str: : 
I enclose a letter from Mr, Abbey, who is a reliable man, in regard to yield of 
bottom gravel in Cherokee Mine. His estimate of yield is very good; in fact much better 
than I antictpated, and there should be a considerable profit in working it. 
HAMILTON SMITH, Jr., M. E. 


Cuerokez, Jan, 10, 1880, 
Hamitton Satu, Esq, * 
“Dear, Sir, : . ae 
During your examination of tiié'property of the “* Spring Valley Mining and 
Irrigating Company,” I understood you to say that it was very unsatisfactory to you to under. 
take to make a correct report of a,mine where no measurement of the ground had been 
taken, nor séparate.accounts kept of the yield of the different strata, 

During my residence herd of five years our sluices have been too high to allow of working 
the lower strata on the ‘main land, until within a few days of your arrival, when you will 
doubtless recollect we had a branch cut which entered the bottom of the gravel, and that 
there we began to clean off the bedrock, preparatory.to erecting a derrick, with which to 
handle the larger boulders with greater facility; here Mr. Harris worked off a block of 
ground and washed it, separate from any other, down said branch-cut and sluice, and after 

“squarring up the bank so as to accurately measure, he cleaned up the product and handed 
me the following report: ‘1,166 cubic yards of blue gravel on bedrock yiclded $10,220, or 
$8.76 per cubic yard from 112 fect of flume.” : : 

The depth of the gravel at this point, you will remember, was about six feet and con- 
tained a large percentage of boulders, which, of course, were all measured with tho gravel. 

This is a part of and a little east of the centre of the ground mentioned by Mr, Stretch, 
as a dark-green and blue gravel left in tho pit. 

The cut which you saw and 112 feet of the branch sluice was all that could be cleaned up ; 
tho gold was of a coarse quality and a good deal corroded. . 

. Considerable of the rusty gold must have passed to the main sluices, and after being 
scoured as it passed down, was amalgamated and caught In the main sluices and under- 
currents, making the product of this lower rocky strata more than $ro per cubic yard. . 

Having felt a deep ‘interest in the value of this almost untried lower deposit, I thought 
that you might also be gratified on learning the result. 
: : 4 Yours truly, 

RICHARD ABBEY. 


Tt will be noticed, by referring to Mr. Stretch’s report, that he gives the estimated yield at 
$5.00 per cubic yard, while by Mr, Abbey's actual working test the yield was $8.76 per cubic 
yard, : :

Unirrep STATES MINING: INVESTMENT Co, 


' 61 ‘Broadway, 


New York, July roth, 1880, 


To the Stockholders of the Spring Valley Ffydraulic Gold Company... 
GENTLEMEN : 


A periodical statement of the condition of the mine will be furnished you from this 


time forward. 


We now heg to advise you that the first clean- “up under the new organization will commence 
about the middle of this month, and will occupy not less than ten days, so that a dividend will 


be declared about the end of July, notice of which will be duly furnished. 


When the property passed into the hands of the Company, it was hoped and expected that the 
clean-up would be made in the month of June; but the delay incident to the changes necessarily 
made under the new consolidation, have prevented us from realizing these expectations without 
detriment to the real interests of the stockholders. 

The change in the location of the hydraulic works, the ‘addition of new monitors, the, removal 
of and addition to the old flumes and sluices, and, more ‘than all, the condition in which the 
property was left by the former owners, involved so much dead work as to render it desirable to 
postpone the clean-up until the time indicated above. As the property is now in full working 
‘order, no further delay will occur, and we anticipate hertafter an improvement on the present 
clean-up, whatever that may be. What it way be we can only roughly estiniate, under advices from 
our engineers and Superintendent Waldeyer,-but presume it will not fall short of $90,000. gross, 
from which arc to be deducted the extraordinary expenses incident to the changes made and the 

_ addition of new machinery, as well as the opening of the tunnel for the purpose of reaching the 
rich deposit of blue gravel lying on the bed-rock, which tunnel has already been located, and will 


be vigorously pushed, so that we hope to inform you of its completion Girly next year. 


This brief statement will ' be followed by another, advising you of the result of the: ‘clean-up, 


about the end of the month, 


ar S. A. WHEELWRIGHT, 


Secretary.

built, and, since February, 1873, the daily | 
supply of water has been 1.210 inches, equal |'

of $407, 084:92, “beside: paying -! for: the con-

which contains 'considerable: fine gold.” Let
